Hello,

I wonder if anyone can help, please. For the first time, my bios beeped 5 times at me this morning. I checked on a web site, which informed me that there could be problems with the motherboard.
Should I worry about this now, or wait to see if it happens again.
Could it be a "one off" for whatever reason?

550 cpu
480 memory (approx)
Win2K
The motherboard is around 4 years old.

Thanks for any pointers you may be able to give.

Thanks Steve, will go look now. I may have to get my "Techie" friend to come and re-seat things, as I don't know what I am doing when it comes to the inside of the case!!:)

Appreciate your help:cool:

Hello there,

All is now well with my p.c. after a visit from the "doctor"! It turns out that the cpu wasn't seated absolutely correctly, and the heatsink wasn't operating as it should.

Bye,
Penny.:)
